Now GONZO also did a series with a lot of
its content based on fan service. Mainly in the series called Vandread. A
quick plot summary of the series showed that men and women lived on
totally different planets and feared each other enough to the point of
going to war. Now this is a great premise for a series based on hilarious
incidents between men and women who knew nothing about the other sex. Fan
service? definitely.. but done well and was part of the story.

Yes.. I'm talking about those French
maids with short skirts and guns!
I mean... come on.. did the director
really need to set the camera angles so low? a level face shot of the maid
would of been just as effective in communicating the message... this is
total blatant fan service and it's shows like this that give all of anime
a bad rap.
Most people who haven't seen anime before

With anime shows like this.. I can see
why people would say that..
The director, studio, art team would off
been better off doing a hentai series instead of some pointless 'lets see
how many times we can do panty flashes in 5 min' anime series.
But even the mainstream shows have some
of it, which can be distracting sometimes. For example Ghost in the Shell
always had some nudity in the movie but it was done artistically..
Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex..
Major Kusanagi seems to like to walk around in a G string type of Section
9 uniform? And there is fan service in this series when it is clearly not
needed... most people don't associate Ghost in the Shell with kawaii fan
